The flagship of the house, the Grande Cuvee is imposing in character from the first moment in the glass. The birth of Krug's Grande Cuvee, through its first fermentation exclusively in small oak casks, ensures the unique personality and dimension that is the Krug style. The composition of the "cuvee" shows a stunning breadth of flavors where the three Champagne grapes, 20-25 growths and 6-10 different years, combine to give Krug Grande Cuvee its complexity, elegance and consistency year after year, blend after blend. This delicious consistency leads to consistently terrific ratings, too: from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90 points, saying 'The NV Brut Grand Cuvee offers up attractive suggestions of pears, quince, spice, brioche and minerals. As is often the case here, the Grand Cuvee reveals notable elegance and finesse. The use of reserve wines in the blend gives this wine an unusual level of complexity,' while Wine Spectator gave it a whopping 95 points and declared it 'a smoky, intense wine, with layer upon layer of coffee, roast nut, golden piecrust, ripe apple, honey and spice flavors. The richness is balanced by a focused freshness, perfectly poised like a high diver about to jump, standing above the crowd and showing the interplay of power and control in an elegant package. Drink now through 2026.'
